Reds Take Series Through Series of Quick, Homoerotic, Movements

Since I've been so lazy about my photoshopping, I decided to rerun one of my favorites. It's Mr. Red, not to be confused with Mr. Redlegs, in his Michael Myers' mask horrifying children. He does exhibit strong form and fundamentals.

The Reds needed some timely hitting on Friday to grant Ondrusek, in relief of Wood, his first Major League win. Bruce failed to get a bunt down, which we all know is a waste of everyone's time, then doubled in the go-ahead run a pitch later. That's a little more like it Ray-Jay. Yesterday was Cueto's show. Though the offensive production could be mentioned in the footnote, four bombs and all of old asshole Oswalt. Nice to pound him into submission, especially as he's tarting it up around town trying to find an attractive suitor. But Cueto went 8, allowed no runs on 4 hits and maybe threw a few too many pitches. 122 in a 7-0? But as always, I'm not the one with the 180 IQ like old pal Dusty.

Today, the offense didn't bother getting out of bed in support of Leake. I've seen Wandy confound the Reds in year's past, but not this year. He's been awful, yet today he throw 7 scoreless. I know you won the first two games, but how about someone other than Votto give Wandy the beating he's been asking about. Anyone around here know where I could get a beating? Preferably with a bat? And there may be some indication that Leake stuck around a little too long, giving up 3 or his 4 in the 7th. But, Arty Rhodes doesn't typically let those inherited runners score. So, the decision makes more sense when viewed in that capacity. Overall, the trip to Houston was a positive one. Now onto Milwaukee which has been a very Reds first ballclub this year. Hopefully they stick to that policy. The starter tomorrow, Randy Wolf, gave up 13 runs during his last start. That is quite fine. Things look very positive for the Cincinnatians.
